PNA-X R1 attenuation

If I understand correctly, the power at the R1 receiver should be ~20dBm max for measurement. If that is so, then if one wants +5dBm at Port, one must have ~20dB attenuation in front of R1 (this would be an external attenuator on the front panel)? 
I am questioning this, as I doubt Agilent would require external attenuators when one is operating the equipment well within the power available at the test port.
